Semper Fi Fund announces new pilot program – America’s Fund

June 9th, 2012

Immediate and Lasting Injured Service Member Support

Oceanside, CA -- The Semper Fi Fund (SFF) is excited to announce our new pilot program, "America's Fund."

America's Fund will direct urgently needed resources and financial support to all injured and critically ill members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.

The America's Fund will be administered by the Semper Fi Fund, an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit with an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy and a 4-star (highest possible) rating from Charity Navigator.

As injured heroes from different branches of service are treated side by side at our nation's military hospitals, requests for assistance to all branches have continued to grow. We are excited to begin fulfilling those requests today!

Today, our first priority is providing family support grants. These enable families to spend time at loved ones’ hospital bedsides, free from the financial pressures of travel, temporary lodging and lost wages.

With your support, we plan to quickly expand our range of services to include assistance for specialized and adaptive equipment, adaptive housing, adaptive transportation, education and career transition, therapeutic arts, and PTSD and TBI support. Additionally, we want to continue building programs that have proven beneficial to rehabilitation and recovery, such as team-based athletics and the Tim and Sandy Day Canine Companions Program.

For more information, please see the America's Fund website or contact us by email or phone 202-772-1081. You may also Download the America's Fund "Questions and Answer Sheet" for more details.
